No. 11 Wisconsin was bound to give a good effort at home on Sunday after dropping two straight and falling behind Purdue in the Big Ten standings.
The Badgers built a lead in the second half and snapped their two-game losing streak with a Sunday afternoon win over Maryland. I'm going to put him back in the next game. It was only the second loss in eight Big Ten road games for the Terps.
One of the biggest issues for the Terps was their inability to rebound.
Senior Nigel Hayes hit 3 of 7 shots and added six points. MI snapped a five-game losing streak to Wisconsin and won for just the third time in the last 20 meetings against the Badgers. It also marked the junior guard's 16 consecutive game in double figures. Senior point guard Bronson Koenig was active for the Badgers after missing the MI game on Thursday night, but D'Mitrik Trice got the start as Wisconsin looked to stay atop the Big Ten race.

MI center Wagner led the Wolverines with 12 points, but when he was removed after his first foul with 8:23 left in the half, he was replaced by freshman Jon Teske. The sequence took eight seconds from the opening puck drop and it was 1-0.

Berbatov to Spurs: don't underestimate Fulham in the FA Cup
The second half disappointed us that we were better and we created a chance when in the first half it was hard to create a chance. The club's prolific striker suffered a knee injury of some sort in the club's embarrassing 1-0 loss at Gent yesterday.
Abdur-Rahkman added 12 points for MI, which will play four of its final five games on the road, starting on Sunday at Minnesota.
Melo Trimble led the Terrapins with 27 points, which included four 3-pointers.
After going 11-for-16 in the paint in the first half, Wisconsin was just 7-for-19 in that area after halftime.
Both teams combined for 48 fouls. Redshirt freshman guard Brevin Pritzl looked like he had answered at least one of those with a three of his own in the waning seconds, but his shot came just a split second after the shot clock expired and was waved off. Hayes fired a pass over to Happ sitting all alone on the block leading to an easy dunk, making the score 46-38.

Ilitch and give a hug, it's nice to be able to do that", he said, according to a report by George Sipple in the Deroit Free Press. Despite the city's decline in the decades following, Ilitch stayed in his hometown, earning him much admiration.
Despite those ugly numbers, UW trailed by just 33-27 at the break.
The #23 Maryland Terrapins are 22-4 heading into a critical showdown with #11 ranked Wisconsin, who boasts a similar 21-5 record. Hayes took 15 field goal attempts and shot 14 free throws, sinking nine. Heading into last weekend, the Badgers sat tied for the top with Minnesota, but after a two poor losses to Penn State, the Badgers sit in the passenger seat heading into the final few weekends.
